Yes, that's right. I've finally strapped on my patented Shinji Ikari portaspine, stopped compulsively editing and re-editing, and handed Knights in Tarnished Armor off to a publisher. It's now available as an ebook, in Kindle, Epub, LRF, PDB, HTML, PDF, RTF, and Text formats, for $4.95 a copy (or, if you use Coupon Code SX84W when you check out, you can get your copy for free, until May 7, 2010). For people who prefer a recycled tree edition, you can get it as a 6"x9" paperback for $15.55.

Now, before I lose my nerve, I need to make sure First Contact is clean, set it up for publishing, and then package all the various short stories I've written into an anthology (still working on a title for that) that will get the same treatment.

If anyone can recommend a good, high-quality FLOSS TTS program that I can use to produce an audio version of the book, I'd be grateful enough to send them a free copy of what comes out when I process it through the program.

If quality TTS just isn't available in FLOSS, I may just have to bite the bullet and burn out my vocal cords. If that's the case, so be it, but I really do want an audio version of the book available for my friends who are blind or otherwise need a copy they can listen to.

Remember when you were in high school, and had to listen to those interminable morning announcements? Imagine what it would be like if you attended a school like Rowan Glen Academy.

title: Through a Glass, Darkly (Chapter Three: Terror and Tenderness)
author: Bill Hartwell
rating: teens
fandom: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, Aa! MegamiSama!
characters/pairings: Usagi/Mamoru, Rei/Makoto, Ami/Fred
disclaimer: If you recognize it, and it’s not from Knights in Tarnished Armor, it’s not mine.
author’s note: What Ami sees and hears in Fred's memories are not made up for this story. They actually happened, and what his ex-wife says in his memories are as close to an exact quote as it is possible to remember after ten years.
Some people might disagree with my rating of this chapter. Tough! They probably disagree with the existence of sexual information in their school nurse's office, or the number of the local suicide hotline being posted in their school counselor's office, too.
